New Home Building Trends to Watch for in 2020
Jan 10, 2020
If you’re planning to build your dream home this year, make sure to work with quality builders—now that the new decade is upon us, so to are new home design trends that will inspire future builds. This is a great time to familiarise yourself with what’s set to take over the realm of home design in 2020. To help, we’ve rounded up some trends that may provide more material for your drawing board!
Recent years have seen a trend towards minimalism. Associated with that are many Japanese design traditions.
So, it comes as no surprise that Japanese aesthetics will influence new builds this year. The utilisation of natural materials applied in simple forms, with hints of one’s personal style will become prevalent in new builds.
We will also see design which focuses on varied textures of natural materials, such as rattan. In the place of unnecessary frills and decor, we’ll see more key pieces that blend organic shapes, in order to make the house feel warm and inviting.
After years of highlighting exuberant colours, 2020 will bring in colours that are more subdued. We’re talking about maximising the use of warm neutrals and earth tones, which bring in a more comforting atmosphere for homes—they say taupe is very soothing. From tinted greys through to off-whites and hints of moss green, new builds will prefer colours that are easy to work with and easily reconnect people with nature.
As people grow more conscious of their carbon footprints, sustainability in home design will become a fundamental part of the design process rather than being just design trend. The evolution of design values has led to homeowners and designers committing to more sustainable architecture. We will see more installations of all kinds that give respect to their surroundings, and this year, we’re expecting to see increased use of recyclable materials, repurposed furnishings, energy-efficient appliances, and a general integration of nature into the design philosophy.
Natural indoor spaces
This yearning to go back to nature will also extend to home furnishings and accents. Natural motifs for interior spaces will emerge as we see designers incorporating lush greens, botanical prints and delicate florals to the design of spaces. This natural look are also subtlety applied through furnishings made from wicker, bamboo, wood, and stone.
Designers and house builders will also lean more towards applying updated looks of geometrical shapes, whether it be on your home’s walls or floors. Inspiration from the Art Deco era will grace 2020 home interiors with geometric shapes, making a statement in kitchens and baths, and bringing a modern element into home design.
